Speaking after the match, he said: 'I couldn't hold back the tears as I had to face racist insults from the terraces for 90 minutes.'I was even more shocked by the attitude of opposing players who, instead of calming things down, backed this behaviour.'Partizan coach Marko Nikolic, who was sacked by Slovenian side Olimpija Ljubljana last April for racially abusing one of his own players, said Luiz was likely to face disciplinary action from the club.However, he urged Serbia's football authorities to punish Rad's supporters.He said: 'Everton should not have reacted but something provoked his outburst, didn't it?'Both sides in the incident should be punished. These things happen in football but it is now up to the authorities to sanction the offenders. It's a return to the reality of Serbian football.'While at Olimpija, Nikolic called the club's Nigerian striker Blessing Eleke a 'black idiot' for his over-exuberant celebration of an equalising goal, which meant his team had less time to find a winner in a 1-1 home draw with Zavrc.
